Appeared in Choice on 2007-04-01:
The strong point of the second edition of this reference tool (1st ed., CH, Dec'98, 36-1934) is its synthesis of nursing research in many different areas, followed when necessary by recommendations for future research. Both editors are very well qualified. Fitzpatrick (Case Western Reserve) is senior editor for the Annual Review of Nursing Research (Springer, 1983-) and coeditor, with K. S. Montgomery, of Internet for Nursing Research (CH, Apr'05, 42-4679). Wallace (Fairfield Univ.) has extensive experience as an author and editor. Written in easily understandable language, the 320 entries by 200 experts are arranged in alphabetical order; 30 percent are new to this edition. This book provides succinct summaries of major theorists, research findings, and many other aspects of nursing, including material on continuing care retirement communities, disparities in health, nursing informatics, and retirement.Entries incorporate recommendations for further reading and research. One missing area is ethics. Although the ethics of research is discussed, research on ethical consultation is omitted. In addition, some topics important for the practicing nurse are missing, such as core measures, the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, nursing-sensitive indicators, and process improvement. By summarizing existing studies and using understandable language, this book can really jump-start evidence-based practice in a variety of nursing settings. It is an indispensable reference not only for researchers and graduate students, but also for practice-based research councils and evidence-based practice teams. The title's companion volume from Springer is A Dictionary of Nursing Theory and Research, by B. A. Powers and T. R. Knapp (3rd ed., CH, Feb'06, 43-3143). This encyclopedia will be a very valuable addition to academic libraries supporting nursing or medical programs, evidence-based practice teams, and practice-based research councils. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners. L. A. Blewett formerly, University of Chicago

Long Description
This volume brings together, for the first time, all the research on alcohol use that is relevant to nursing practice. Alcohol plays a major role in health care problems, which affects nursing practice from obstetrics to geriatrics. It also may have some significant health benefits, when used in moderation. This book reviews the research on both detrimental and beneficial effects, throughout the lifespan. As in all the Annual Reviews, leading nurse researchers provide students, researchers, and clinicians with the foundations for evidence-based practice and further research.
